  7. Enter http://mail.domain.com/.well-known/webdav in the DAV Url text box.
    • Replace htto with https if secure connections are utilized.
    • Replace mail.domain.com with the FQDN or IP address to the MDaemon server.
    • If you are not running WorldClient under port 80, you'll need to add : and the port number after the FQDN or URL

    Please Note - Once chosen, the plug-in will replace the DAV Url with the actual path the service uses, do not change it back after selecting the server item.
  12. Leave Outlook <--> Server (Two-Way) selected as the Synchronization Mode (unless a one way sync option is desired).
